  • I’ve removed the “proudly powered by…” text in my footer by using

    .site-info {
    	display: none;

    Now I’d like to add some different text (copyright, my name, etc.) and can’t figure out how to do it. Any ideas? Here’s my site:

  • You need to go to Appearances to Editor.
    Then look for Theme Footer on the left side and click on that link. ie should say something like
    Theme Footer (footer.php)

    Note make sure you make a copy of of the info before you make any changes.
    recommend you copy and paste the info on a note pad or word pad

    Also look at Customizing under Appearances and look for Widgets and select which could also have footer info

    Hope this helps

    You’ve got some options here:

    While hiding it with CSS is a way to remove that text, it still kinda exists.

    What I reccomend (intermediate difficulty), is to go to either
    1. (Hard) FTP/Cpanel/etc and head to your wp-content/themes/sketch folder
    2. (Not as Hard) Dashboard > Appearance > Editor then look for footer.php

    then look for the <div id="site-info"> and contents inside of it.

    You can pretty much wipe out anything inside of it replace it with you what you need.
